Our feature today in our afternoon edition comes to us from the SentinelSource.com. That is the online edition of the Keene (NH) Sentinel and today’s article features Keene Funeral Director Susan Simonds.
Ms. Simonds is the operating manager of two funeral homes in Keene, both of which happen to be affiliated with the Dignity Memorial Network of Service Corporation International.
The article, that you can read here, is a very good testament to someone who came to funeral service as a second career and now has learned that the rewards of funeral service are much more than monetary. The article articulates that she truly enjoys helping each client family celebrate their loved one in the best practical way for them.

- Shepherd hooks at Riverside Cemetery. Hoosier Times (IN). Editors note: This article is about what can be left and not left at this particular Indiana cemetery. I chalked the article up to “You learn something every day”. Evidently there has been some discussion at this cemetery about “Shepherd hook hanging flower holders”. After 35 years in the business and serving on a cemetery board for a few years, I never realized that people that mow cemetery lawns can continuously hit their heads on these devices while mowing and they can become a hazard to those workers.
